Using signal-averaging techniques, one can record small membrane currents which remain even after blockage of the ionic currents which accompany electrical excitation in muscle. These residual currents probably represent the reorientation of charged molecules inside the membrane in response to a change in membrane potential. Two operationally separable… (More)
